, but will the obama administration let it happen or turn an oil boom into a bust? welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot. headed into friday, fiscal cliff talks with congressional leaders, president obama gave us a hit list of his negotiations strategies, repeating his intention to immediately raise tax rates on top earners. >> when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars and it's very difficult to see how you make up that trillion dollars if we're serious about deficit reduction, just by closing loopholes and deductions. the math tends not to work. >> paul: but does the president's math add up? let's ask wall street journal columnist bill mcguerin, and analyst steve moore and washington columnist kim strassel. so, kim, the president won reelection, was this the hand of magnimty reaching out to the republicans? >> it's crazy, it's what the president says all the time. if you listen to the press conference, he seems to say the biggest wish list for his liberal partisans
to fake a scandal in the obama administration. paul waldman calls it scandal envy. nixon had watergate, clinton had le win ski and obama has gotten off scot-free and it's making the republicans livid. republicans are not going to get the watergate this time around. senator harry reid wrote a letter to john mccain and lindsey graham saying a collect committee for investigation will not happen. the time for phoney outrage is over. republicans need to get back to the real problems facing americans. get your cell phones out. tonight's question, will the gop stop their witch hunt on benghazi? text a for yes, b for no to 622639. or you can leave a comment on our blog. and we'll bring you results later on in the show. joining me now is retired colonel lawrence wilkerson, former chief of staff number colin powell's term. colonel, good to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here, ed. >> take us down the road of talking points. do we see unified talking points? is this common practice that the intell committee will get together to brief the congress and to brief the country? and is it usual
president obama got it right when he said she received information from my administration and if you have an issue with what she said then you come to me, and i think he's right. he's accepting responsibility as far as this issue is concerned. you know, we have to move on and we know that there are issues involving benghazi and the most unfortunate thing is that we've lost four lives and i want to focus on, number one, why this happened, how did it occur and to make sure it doesn't occur in the future and these are the issues that we need to start focusing on and to make sure that we can protect the people who work for the state department or for the united states and hot spots throughout the world. the highest priority is to protect their lives in the future. >> congressman, thank you very much for joining me. >> okay. got it. >> my next guest has known general petraeus. the author of the new book "the generals." welcome, mr. ricks. >> thank you. >> you say at the start of this book there are no bad soldier, only bad generals. many people have taken a dim view of general petraeus', but w
of the government of israel and the position of the obama administration and it's the position of the european union and the quartet. it is not the position of hamas and the terrorists. they're dedicated to our destruction. >> ambassador, thank you very much for joininging me. >> pleasure, pierce. >> joining me is the palestinian legislative council, a number of the plo executive committee. welcome to you. >> thank you, pierce. we just heard from ambassador michael oren, very strong words saying this is entirely down to hamas and the grip that hamas now has on the gaza strip. what is your reaction? >> that's not only disingenuous, but it's very misleading and it has very little to do with the truth, but we're used to the israeli officials' spin. actually before hamas took over in 2007 the israelis continually used gaza as a firing range, shooting at will, killing, destroying. in 2008 and 2009 they killed 1,440 palestinians and mainly civilians. today they're killing over 30 palestinians mainly civilians, children and women and at the same time they're talking about surgical strikes and they use the
. it is now a political issue over when the barack obama administration knew what prompted the attack. spontainious reaction from a muslim video or terrorist. briefing lawmakers in september. now, impressions of the meeting are next. >> so much of this confusion a rises because of the difference between what is lastified and what is unclassified. >> he told us it was a terrorist attack. that the terrorists were involved from the start. i told him my questions i have a different rechraeugz of that. >> reporter: he says he had no development in the talking points used by rice. in early dis the embas door pointed to the film and pointed to the cause. >> if they are unclassified at an early stage. >> he wassad little about his affair. >>> it had northing to do with the way he handled be nghazi. >> he was not under -- benghazi. he was not under oath while he testified. >>> in washington, emily schmidt. >>> jill kelly and her twin sister visited three times eating two courtesy meals at the white house cafeteria and getting a tour of an aid. it was a request for an investigation into a thre
could come on, colby. giving her all that access, i'm sorry -- >> is the obama administration guilty of a cover-up in the benghazi attack? >> the reason i don't trust her is i think she knew better and if she knew better, she should not be the voice of america. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, to be smartrip reputati -- to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. >> they are talking about un ambassador susan rice, who could be the president's nomination to be secretary of state. they're talking about her appearance on talk shows on september 16 following the attacks in benghazi. charles krauthammer, our friend, is off this week -- i think he is in miami traveling -- has been hammering at this for weeks. he says it was up phony political cover story during the election. >> we don't know yet paid may be the intelligence commun -- don't know yet. maybe the intelligence committees have some notion, but we don't know yet. it seems like there were 85 things going on at once.
was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. let's go to david. why would he use words like this. this is the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. this was unscripted. this is the pure romney. >> chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark and when i saw it i couldn't believe it. maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying to it play up to that crowd, that's what they wanted to hear. now when we hear him talk about voters he didn't just say he was bought off, that obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas. so they are the moochers, they are victims who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. so just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47% rant and now you have republicans running away from him and basically saying hey don't let the car elevator door hit you on the way out. >> let me go to one thoughtful conservative. who i usually agree with. he's a smart guy. he writes for "the weekly standard." it seems to me tha
lawmakers he believed right away the libya assault was terrorism even though the obama administration blamed an anti-islam video, which was a lie. the former cia director said he didn't know who removed the reference from the original talking points. petraeus made mentions of military groups and was replaced with the word extremist, but was not aware of which agency had done that. >> talking points were specific about the affiliations and the terrorist activities. they didn't have it in front of them. whatever the process is, it was unclear and it was taken out. >> is this the smoking gun or the smoking cannon or the smoking room? the fact that it would changing they would say it is to hide -- to not let the terrorists know that we knew. is that legitimate? >> that could be well -- >> it is a legitimate point, but is it right? >> no. shear what petraeus was i believe was trying to point out, and there are two issues with his testimony. at least as we know. it it has been discussed anonymously and we don't have the details. but when the cia gathers information out in the field, it is just raw
of president obama in the past. in your book you said the obama administration has sent contradictory messages and bringing into question the level of support for israel. many palestinian leaders believe they can get their state without offering any concession of their own. are you still, sir, as critical of the president saying hamas needs to stop the attacks? >> i said it very clearly in the past. president obama made very few mistakes coming to cairo in 2009. it doesn't work that way. we have to speak in a different language in the middle east. i know yesterday that prime minister netanyahu spoke with the president and we have the support of the u.s. behind us, but too early to call. we have to see if we will act and go into the ground operation and then we'll know if the u.s. for now we have the support and grateful for the support, the technical support and we also see the technology that we're using to bring down some of the missiles. >> danny dennen deputy speaker of the knesset. thank you very much, sir. >>> coming up next hour, i'll talk with a member of the palestinian legislative co
to the intelligence assessment. >> general, we have the gop still suggesting that the obama administration concealed the fact benghazi was a terror attack for political reasons. from what we have learned from general petraeus's testimony, doesn't it seem the administration held back information, if they did so it was because a genuine national security concern existed? >> well, you know, my take on this, alex, this is centralist political posturing inside washington. the problem was we had inadequate ground security there. that's a state department function, not cia. when the thing went bad we had this am bass do, bilingual in arabic, he shouldn't have been there. that was the problem. but -- characterized the mob was minutiae for good next sakes. libya is a mess. there's no government, no army. it's not a success. probably better than having that monster gadhafi and his family in charge of it. but that's the problem. they have to get their eyesight up. we've got a war in afghanistan going that's running us $6 billion a month and several hundred killed and wounded a month. and here we're focused on
: republicans contend the obama administration want today change the talking points for political reasons, to downplay presence of terrorists in libya. democrats say the edits were made to protect classified information and keep al-qaeda in the dark about what we knew about the attack. kelly. >> kelly: all right. molly, thank you for that report. >> molly, thank you as well. we're going to have much more on the benghazi hearings coming up at the bottom of the hour, we will talk to a member of the house intelligence committee who has been in on some of those hearings. >> kelly: indeed we will. and admitting to a major flaw in airline security. just ahead, what it means for passenger safety. >> jamie: so close to holiday travel, too, and two rock icons, using star power to raise awareness about teenagers, that are fighting cancer. you don't want to miss this. we'll be right back. ♪ why settle for less? testing hot tar... great sinesses deserve great rewards!

when the obama administration what prompted the attack. a spontaneous recognition to an anti muslim video, or terrorists >> then the cia director pretorius 3 km in september. now, impressions of that meeting are mixed. >> so much of this confusion arises because of the difference between what is classified and what is not classified. he has told us that this was a terrorist attack or if there were a terrorist involved from the start. i told him my questions, had a very different recollection of that. >> congre congressman's askiking said petraeus testified he had no to wreck involvement in developing the top ones used by susan rice. in early days after the attack the u.n. ambassador to the united nations pointed to the film as a potential cause. >> the key is that there were unclassified talking points at a very early stage. >> jacqueline: reporters are sat lawmakers are saying that- for transgendered was asking little about his affair with biographer paula broadwell anything that occurred with respect to disperse the situation has nothing to do with the way he handled benghazi at a
of reporters. and i'm sure for the military and for the obama administration. the investigation, the federal investigation of how paula broadwell, his mistress, obtained all this classified information, all be it right now what we know is a pretty low level of classified information. how did she obtain it. did general petraeus give it to her. did he mishandle classified information is the central question and how that is answered will decide his fate. >> carol, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, gary. >> in today's welcome home segment, a u.s. marine who struggled to readjust to civilian life when he returned from iraq finds a way back to normal. he did it through ballet. he tells his story in his own words. >> i'm romonbaca. i'm a u.s. marine, iraq veteran. i'm also the director of the dance company. i started dancing at a smaller studio. that led to transitioning to larger studios. >> make sure your fingers are articulating. >> as typical american, i took a lot of things for granted. i wanted to see if i could do something totally different than being an artist. had something to prove
. >> talking about money down the drain. obama administration gave struggling car battery maker 1, 2, 3 systems nearly $1 million the same day it filed for bankruptcy. a company scored a 249-million-dollar grant back in 2009. and applebys is introducing some new spirited items to their menu. they include a chicken and portabella mushroom deal that uses cabernet denny glaze. pretzel with the beer cheese dip. delicious. you don't have to be 21 years or older either. the chain says the booze infused food is available to all ages. alli, it cooks off the alcohol, i do believe. no buzz included. >> i think you are right. you have a future as a waiter. >>. federal housing administration could be latest casualty that continues to limp to recovery. recent audit of the agency predicted loss of $16.3 billion at the end of 2013. for the terrorist full-time in 17 years the fha could need a bailout from taxpayers. so what does this mean for all of us? let's ask real estate expert kendra todd who joins us live from seattle. good morning, kendra. >> good morning. >> so as we just reported. the fha it was just
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organized to take opportunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
obama has a taco holder gets gas. they're together all the time. he knew, they told them. they're best friends, who wouldn't tell you that somebody in your administration is having an affair. >> maybe he was, maybe they're so close that the attorney general wanted to protect the investigation and protect president obama from knowing about it. >> that's what they want you to believe, dana. >> they want you to believe, and plausible deniability and holder is going to fall on it kind of like rice, when you're around obama, you take the hit. >> and the suggestion that the president is told about affairs in the government, that would be a long-- >> bob. >> and the other thing, when he said that it was not a threat to national security, i have absolutely no roone to disbelieve that and why in the world. >> i do, i think that they were distracted and you had a general allen sending 30,000 pages back and forth worth of e-mails and there doesn't leave a lot of time left in the day to do your job. >> i don't know how they can make the determination then, only a couple of days ago did the fbi go
't we have to say that if obama believes what he actually said during the recent political campaign? >> well, i agree with that. of course the administration wants to have it both ways because that's the nature of diplomacy. it's going to let the israelis get a green light here, but they're going to then stop the israelis from doing what essentially is to finish the job. after all, hamas is the equivalent of the khani network. if it works for the united states to use drones and to attack the terrorists that are attacking the american troops, what's good for the goose is good for the gander here. larry, but at the same time you know the game. the administration is going to recognize that the egyptians are going to be placed in a position of having to do something if the israelis do invade, and the americans have a strategic interest, as of course the israelis do, of preserving the egyptian-israeli peace treaty. and that's -- >> but the israeli forces can bottle up gaza and stop egyptian weapons from getting through. they can do that, can they someone. >> yeah, well, that's the proble
